Well, you're making my point by mentioning the FG42. Innovative, but largely uncontrollable due to the full-size round. I talked with an old German who was in the Fallschirmjager who managed to use both the FG42 and Stg44. The later sturmgewehr was definitely a more useable combat rifle in his opinion due to the mid-size round.

But then I'm a submariner-wannabe-swiss-seiko-wearing-whiskey-tango-charley-foxtrot.
